University Study Says Racism Is To Blame For Black Women Having The Highest Obesity Rates?
The study, by Slone Epidemiology Centre at Boston University, found the relationship between racism and obesity was strongest among women who reported consistently high experience of racism over a 12 year period. The research was based on the Black Women’s Health Study, which enrolled 59,000 African-American women in 1995 and has followed them since.
While rates of obesity in the U.S. have risen rapidly over the past few decades, the greatest increases have been seen in African American women, half of whom are currently classified as obese.
There is nothing I can say that will not be construed as racist. However, might I suggest eating healthier and exercise… just a thought.
